Eleven things about ME

Since 11-11-11 won't come around for 100 more years, a blog suggestion I read was to blog eleven things about yourself.  Here goes...

1. When asked as a kid, "What do you want to be when you grow up..." I would respond with, "A stay-at-home mommy who goes to Bible study."  Did I have an awesome role model or what??  (Thanks, Mom)  And now I am living my dream (in every sense of the word).  I'm in love with my life.  These two rascals make it so enjoyable!

2. I taught school before I had kids.  I enjoyed that very much.  Yet, school makes me sad now.  I really don't like it when my kids go away everyday.  Plus, I don't think I could handle the challenges that teachers face in classrooms now.  The education system (both public and private) make me sad.

3. College football is my favorite season.  Go Tigers!

4.  I believe flip flops should be worn year round.

5. I am a morning person, not a night owl.  Ironically, I love to sleep.  So maybe I'm really a sleep person.

6. I run, and I despise it.  I keep waiting for that thing called THE RUNNER'S HIGH to happen to me.  Nada... Nope this has NEVER happened to me:
7. Our house is often neglected, because I volunteer all the time.  Lou thinks I'm one of the only people who love to work hard and not get paid.  Seriously, I volunteer for things that should be paid positions.  But I just can't help it.

8. I don't like my food to touch on my plate.  And until recent, I only ate one item at a time off my plate.  Oh, did I mention I have an A-Type personality to the n-th degree?? LOL!

9.  Traveling is one of my favorite things to do.  Hawaii is my favorite place on Earth.  Here is a photo of us in Hawaii.  I still hope to make it to Australia before my time is up here on Earth.

10. My kids are 3 and 6-years-old and I haven't come close to finishing their baby books.  I've made a few of my friends promise me that if I were to die early, they would finish the boys' books for me.  They all chuckle when I say it...but I.AM.SERIOUS!

11. While coming up with this list, I realize I'm not very exciting.  If I live to be 136, hopefully I can write a thrilling list of 12 things on 12-12-12 (year: 2112).  I guess I need to 'up my game' on life's adventures!
